I offer a variety of options to fit with different families’ needs. Please reach out to me with any questions or to discuss other payment options. I am open to setting up payment plans and offer reduced fees for families in need. My services can also be gifted to someone and included on a gift registry.
I offer a complimentary face-to-face meeting, usually lasting between 20-30 minutes. (During Covid all consultations are being held over Zoom.) This gives us a chance to briefly chat to see if we’re a good fit. At this time I can answer any initial questions you or your support person may have. Contact me to schedule a meeting.
During a prenatal visit, which usually lasts up to two hours, we will go over your birth plan. I will meet with you and your support partner to discuss how we can create the environment you desire. We will go over your questions and concerns. We will cover pain relief ideas from natural to medical options. Prenatal visits are not substitutes for a birthing class. I recommend attending an out-of-hospital birth class.
Labor and Birth
I will be with you during your labor and childbirth, offering emotional and physical support as needed.
About a week after your baby is born, I will come for a postpartum visit. This will be a one to two-hour visit to support you in your new role. This is an ideal time for you to ask questions or share concerns. We can discuss your birth, and I can help with basic breastfeeding/chestfeeding questions. I have a list of resources if you need additional help.
Postpartum Doula Services
Services include home visits immediately following birth or returning home. As a postpartum doula my role is to support you during the recovery and adjustment time. My services include (but not limited to) helping with breastfeeding/chestfeeding, helping parents learn how to care for their newborn and how to read their baby’s cues. During a visit I might sit and listen and help you process feelings, do a load of dishes, and hold the baby so a parent can shower or nap. Each visit is unique.
I offer daytime and nighttime hours. Contact me to see which package best fits your needs. Daytime shifts are $35/hour; Nighttime shifts are $40/hour
